Darius Stone, a new agent in the xXx program, is sent to Washington, D.C. to stop a coup attempt against the President of the United States.
The rifles that Deckert's (Willem Dafoe's) men use, during the attack on the N.S.A., and in the Chamber of Commerce scenes, are replicas of the experimental XM8 assault rifle. They are actually visually modified German G36K assault rifles, as can be seen from a visible hinge allowing their stocks to fold.
Gen. George Octavius Deckert:
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots."
President James Sanford: "... and tyrants." *That's* the *end* of the quote.
When Darius is on the speed train and the gas is leaking from the broken hose, in a scuffle a lighter falls out of his pocket. The lid however, was closed when shown laying on the floor. Later when Darius grabs for it, it is then already open.
The UK version was trimmed slightly for a scene where a man is stabbed from behind to remove "detail of the knife emerging from his stomach". This was done before formal classification by the BBFC and was done after being given advice by them during post-production so that they could secure a 12A certificate.
